Publisher's Summary

A magnificent saga of American fiction, the Sacketts series is one of the greatest treasures by legendary storyteller Louis L'Amour. In The Daybreakers, L'Amour spins the tale of two brothers who couldn't be more different - yet remain bound by their restlessness of spirit.

"Ride with the law, never against it."
You had to push to start a fight with Orrin Sackett, but not with his brother, Tyrel. Tye had been born to trouble, and the night he stepped between his brother and a bullet changed the course of both their lives forever. Now their trail pointed west, to Santa Fe, a frontier town on the edge of violence - but justice had to come before putting down roots in a lawless land. Orrin took on the job of marshal, while Tye commanded fear and respect even without a badge. But when a loose end from their past turned up, one brother was forced to revert to his old ways - if the other's dreams were to be realized...

Don't miss other titles in The Sacketts series.

    "Very enjoyable story"

    I really enjoyed this story and the growth of two brothers from the backwoods who each created a new life for themselves. Didn't want to stop listening. Louie La'Amour is awesome.

    "Another Great Louis L'Amour Western Yarn"

    The Daybreakers is another one of L'Amour's Sackett saga titles -- it is just a terrific read, in my opinion. Covering a family's exodus from Appalachia to the wild west -- history, adventure and excitement abound. I couldn't put this one down -- I had to listen straight through.

    I believe that the Sackett novels are the apogee of L'Amour's writings. I hope Audible gets more of this series in it's inventory.

    "Great Vacation Audio Book"

    I took this audio book on a vacation with my son and two nephews to Colorado and Arizona last year. It was great - they got caught up in the story and we even discussed the book several times at dinner.

    I'm not a prude but I don't want the boys listening to an audio book with cursing or inappropriate attitudes. This book was perfect and I was confident that its content would be appropriate for children. The Daybreakers straddles the lines between generations - it was exciting enough to hold my husband, my mother and my interest while thoroughly engaging the boys.

    "True Enjoyment"

    Louis L'Amour kept my attention; not if but when something would happen to a Sackett. Truely an enjoyable and easy listen.

    "A great read, err, listen!"

    I took The Daybreakers with me on a business trip. I found myself wishing the flight would take more time! David Strathairn does a very good job with the narration. His delivery is spot on. And what can be said that has not yet been said about a L'Amour Sackett saga? This is simply one of America's best storytellers at his best.

    "Great Entertainment"

    David Strathaim does a great job narrating this sixth book in the continuing story of the Sacketts. I have found all of the books about the Sacketts well worth listening to a second and sometimes a third time. They are great drama and griping episodes. If you like L' amour you will not be disappointed with "The Daybreakers".

    "My Second Favorite Sackett book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Daybreakers the most enjoyable?

    Second only to Treasure Mountain, really enjoy the story arc and David Strathairn's voice - he seems to suit the material especially well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tyrel was my favorite character in this book ... best developed in my opinion.


    Have you listened to any of David Strathairn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have listened to several of David Strathairn's performances. This one is fine, though again I think the best work is in Treasure Mountain. Or maybe Lonesome Gods.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "The best book in the Sackett series"

    Yes. Listening to this book takes you back in time. It is perfect for a long drive and has a storyline that everyone will enjoy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The wisdom of Ty Sackett. He sees the world different than the people around him and it is profound.


    Which character – as performed by David Strathairn – was your favorite?

    Ty Sacket, the narrator, is my favorite character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I didn't want to stop listening until it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    Any western by Louis L'Amour is a great western but this one rises to the top.
